At this stage, you can attach the Gift Card Holder to a card. To make my card I used Sizzix Bigz XL Die - Card, A2 Striped. This is totally optional. You could use any card or tag.

To die cut this card, create the following Sizzix sandwich: Lay the Card, A2 Striped blade side up on a Sizzix Accessory Cutting Pads - Extended. Lay a 6" x 12" cardstock on the die and cover with another Extended Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine.

Tie a ribbon around the front flap of the card. Attach the Gift Card Holder to the card front to finish. Insert a gift card to a place that your Valentine loves and give it to him or her!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
